This event will provide an introduction to the process and benefts of the practice of intumescent fireproofing. Intumescent paint is your friend. It can be used in creative design solutions where you are trying to express the steel structure, and there are other benefits as well: it takes up less space, doesn’t break off, etc. Come and see how it can be a tool in your design kit. David W. Dust, will cover appropriate application conditions, the benefits of the various types of fireproofing in different situations, and proper finishing to maintain the appropriate level of fire control for the safety of occupants.
